Forecast Discussion

High pressure was situated over the Northeast and will build southward overtop the Carolinas between now and Friday. Temperatures will actually settle back closer to normal for a change.

Cool weather won’t last too long, however. The air mass will steadily moderate over the weekend, allowing temperatures to climb back above normal. All the while, skies will be generally clear.

Monday looks like the warmest day of this forecast cycle, before a cold frontal passage Monday night reduces temperatures ever-so-slightly on Tuesday. Another rebound in temperatures is expected for the mid-to-latter portion of next week.

Autumn officially arrives on Monday, but the weather next week won't really feel like it.
